I have a layout to share that was submitted at Colorful Creations for the September Song Challenge (septsong12) that I'm hosting. You can see my challenge here.
The song I chose is from the band Men at Work and the title of their song is, "Ain't Nothing Gonna Hold Me Down."
Here are the lyrics:
I sailed away to China in a little rowboat to find you
And you said you had to get your laundry cleaned
You have the whole month of September to participate... which I hope you will! :)
Simply use word(s) from the lyrics to create any project of your choice... a tag, card, layout, digi or altered item.
Here's my layout titled, "Ain't Nothing Gonna Break My Stride."
I also used the words "I've Got to Keep on Moving" on my layout as the subtitle.
This is me, helping my in-laws with their potato farming business. I just pulled the 50 lb. bag of potatoes off the rack and set it onto the weigher. Then I grabbed a tie and the twisting tie to close the bag. Each bag was stacked in piles according to the variety of potatoes. It was ridiculously back-breaking hard work... but we still managed to have some laughs and created some wonderful memories.
Every year for many years, I took a week vacation from my office job to help them. Boy, were those LONG days!
Clear Letter Stickers
Walnut Ink Mist
Gems: Home Made
Sketch: Page Maps (Jan 2005)
I used dark brown and maroon colored flowers for this grouping with my home made gold gems for their centers.
The corner chipboard was inked with distress stain and mist. The edges the background cardstock and photo matting were distressed.
I used a gears stencil for the background. Love this stencil!
This is my page title.
Here's a better look at the stenciling.
My page subtitle is on the lower corner of the photo. I used a hole punch and knotted twine through the tag.
Banners were added to the left of the journaling block with a couple more flowers.
The journaling block was matted on pp and the edges were distressed.
And a closer look at the flowers.
